Pfluger to Mayorkas: Resign, or you will be held responsible

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Tuesday, Congressman August Pfluger (TX-11) visited the El Paso, Texas sector of the U.S.-Mexico border with Leader Kevin McCarthy and a delegation of Republican lawmakers. 

While there, the delegation heard directly from Border Patrol Agents who detailed the unmanageable national security crisis at the southern border. They witnessed a large encampment of Venezuelans attempting to cross the southern border illegally, and proved unequivocally that Secretary Mayorkas lied when he told Rep. Pfluger and the Homeland Security Committee that the border is secure.

Rep. August Pfluger released a statement following his visit: “Republicans have a message for Secretary Mayorkas: resign, or you will be held responsible. Our majority will not sit by while you endanger the safety of American citizens and vilify your own Border Patrol Agents.”

During Rep. Pfluger’s last visited to the El Paso sector, his delegation uncovered the terrible reality that known and suspected terrorists were crossing into the United States by way of the southern border, and Democrats and much of the media denied it. Now, it has been confirmed that at least 100 known and suspected terrorists have attempted to cross the border illegally in the last fiscal year—not including those who may be among the 600,000 gotaways who evaded arrest.
